Default Which drum throne to buy?

Hey, I'm buying a new drum throne for christmas as mine is as hard as wood. I have tried the Roc n Soc saddle throne, i liked it.

Have you guys got any opinions about the best throne?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

Jim

Tama 1st Throne.

Expensive, but absolutely amazing. My bum feels better after sitting on it than before!

Seriously, it is a super quality throne.

Happy hunting!

Yep, 1st Chair by Tama. Sometimes I don't want to stand up just because it sits so comfy. It's the best seat in the house ;-)

I've used the Roc N' Soc thrones, but I prefer a Gibraltar 9608. I don't have a big arse, but for me, the Gibraltar has much more support than the Roc N' Soc thrones.

I have the Roc n Soc and a DW (top-of-the-line) one. It took me a while to get used to the Roc n soc because it really feels like you're sitting in a saddle. The DW is just a standard 13" thick padded top. I think I like the round DW top better because I feel like I'm dancing on top of it, and not in it. But I am getting used to it - it is a nice feeling throne.

I like my Tama round hydraulic first chair. I also have a Roc N Soc hydraulic Lunar throne with a back rest which is now just being used at the mixing console. I would either get a hydraulic or one that is adjustable by a "screw" type or worm type adjustment. The tension collar adjustment thrones made me and the floor get much closer acquainted more than once, lol.

I have a Tama 1st Chair saddle and a round model as well. The saddle broke down on the front after a year of use so it gave no support. I use either the round top, a Pierce ergo throne, or a Soundseat.

A Soundseat is by far the best throne I've ever used and if I could find another I'd get it. The Pierce is really cool, but you have to be OK with completely erect posture.

I really like my Tama First Chair Saddle with backrest.
I also have a Gibraltar motorcycle throne with backrest and I like that one.
The Tama is just a slight bit better. I like the rounded backrest.
I tried the Roc N' Soc and that throne was also good.
I just didn't pick it.

Thanks for all your advice!

I went to a drum store in Poole to try out the drum thrones they had. I tried the Tama 1st, a Pork Pie throne and the ROC N SOC. I bought the Roc N Soc saddle throne, its soooo comfy and the guy said that it will last for years and years.

Thanks again!

Jim

Rock on with the new roc n soc! Very durable indeed! Spindle or hydraulic, low or high, wheels or legs? Haha, too curious I guess. They also make bar stool thrones which are very attractive.
